immediate spending cuts, as house speaker john boehner earlier promised. instead, it would force congress to pass a budget or go without being paid. the government could reach the current debt ceiling by mid-february. ray nagin, the mayor of new orleans during hurricane katrina, has been indicted on charges for corruption. a federal grand jury accused him today of bribery, wire fraud, and money laundering while in office. nagin was the city's mayor from 2002 until 2010. two former new orleans officials and two businessmen have already pleaded guilty in the case. u.s. attorney general eric holder today defended president obama's moves to curb gun violence. the president signed 23 executive orders this week, calling for such things as more research into gun violence. today, in washington, holder told the u.s. conference of mayors that there's no question the orders are legal. >> now let me be very clear. let me be very clear. not one of these executive orders contrary to what a few have said impinges upon anyone's second amendment rights or are inconsistent with the historical use of execut
businesses need to consider all stakeholders, not just shareholders. john mackey is the co-founder and co-c.e.o. of whole foods market. he's author of "conscious capitalism: liberating the heroic spirit of business". john, why is concentrating on shareholders a myth as you call it? >> i don't know if concentrating on shareholders is a myth. i mean, most companies do concentrate on their shareholders. it's just not the best business strategy. because you have an interdependent stakeholder system where you need to create value for all of the stakeholders, and that will also create value for your investors or shareholders. for example, at whole foods market, we have to create value for our team members. if they're happy and fulfilled in their work, then they will take care of our customers better and that will result in them being happy alcohol result in the investors being happy. happy team members result in happy cut can mers which result in happy investors. they're all interdependent on one another. >> tom: is that the priority you put the stakeholders in, employees over customers over sh
speaker john boehner. hold on, says columnist rockman. we expect too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in contrast has had to work with a narrow democratic majority in the senate and with an opposition party, the republicans in control of the house for the two years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year terms. on the domestic front, he enacted a major economic recovery package followed by an overhaul of social security. and in his second term, reagan gained a major tax reform. on the defense front, republican president reagan again with the help of the rity presided over a major increase in the defense budget, congress presided over a major increase in the defense budget, the defe including straby millions of protesters here and abroa

journal" poll. the only thing that is worse is john boehner. 18% favorable. this is not a formidable partner. >> over the weekend, "politico" spoke to many advisers and said house republicans and party leaders appear willing to shut down government. we might need to do that four- member management purposes so that they can have an end game and show their constituents they are fighting. get it out of the system? this is not a gastrointestinal problem, this is the government. >> i would suggest therapy and do not shed down the government. i would give it to them for free. the republicans have had a pretty unhappy experience with brinksmanship. years theye gingrich shut down the government and they got shellacked. they tried to force the issue using the debt ceiling in 2011, using the fiscal cliff in january. i am as gung-ho as any of them to force obama into cutting spending. but it failed, and the reason is, you cannot govern from one house of the congress. that is the truth. i wrote a column this morning saying essentially, you have to recognize, you cannot use these things come up a
. it wasn't 11 and right. the australian prime minister, john howard, wrote in the "new york times," fascinating piece about -- >> rose: what he did. >> he was considered pretty far right conservative, but he brought in really draconian gun control, and as he pointed out,ain massacres per the port arthur massacre which was a tipping point in the previous 10 or 12 years, i think it was. and since 1996 not a single one. and in britain a very similar story. >> rose: does britain, does australia have the power of an nra lobby like we do here? >> no, absolutely not. >> rose: is that the critical difference. >> critical difference, but also the gun culture here is completely different. you know, i grew up in a small village in the south of england where nobody had a gun, other than a farmer who would use it for hunting or shooting or people going to a target range. they were just unheard of for people to actually is ray gun at home for self-protection. americans have always believed since gaining independence that you need to have a firearm at home to protect yourself and your family, an
debate is the perfect time for it. and speaker of the house john boehner said the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real but so too are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. the spending and debt issues took most of the president's attention today, but he also turned to the issue of gun violence. after the shootings at an elementary school in newtown connecticut, he appointed vice president biden to come up with recommendations for action. the vice president met with lawmakers today and with groups on both sides of the issue last week. plans to submit proposals by tomorrow. president obama would not discuss specifics today. instead he said this. >> i'm confident that there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. and where you get a step that has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then i want to go ahead and take it. >> brown: he conceded that a fight in congress is likely but he hopes that some compromise is is possible. >> the issue here is no
is whole foods holding up? we ask c.e.o. john mackey. and our friday "market monitor" guest says now is not the time to get too aggressive with your investments. he's glenmede investment's jason pride. >> susie: and monday on "n.b.r.," we take a special look at u.s. innovation. will america be able to keep its competitive edge, through new technologies and entrepreneurship? what better place to answer that question that at i.b.m.'s watson research center. bernie meyerson calls himself i.b.m.'s "chief geek," and leads the firm's efforts on innovation. >> innovation determines whether a large corporation, a small corporation, a startup or an entire society survive. it's that simple. the most direct attribute you can give to a thriving entity, i don't care what scale it is small, medium, large, enormous, is innovation. the reason is fundamentally to not only see the future, but to drive it. >> susie: join us monday for our look at u.s. innovation. it's our special martin luther king junior holiday edition. and, there's more to learn about innovation, on the "n.b.r." website.

to john boehner too many times his speakership could be in trouble. so my guess is it will come from the senate, but you've got zoe meeting quietly with a republican from florida talking about details they can bring back to their colleagues. i think actually this is one of these issues where people in both houses are going to want to take credit for being outfront on this issue. i think you're going to see a spate of bills coming forward. >> scott, this is a hot issue. lots of legislators as you mentioned are jumping on the bandwag bandwagon. the lawmakers you talked to in washington, how hopeful are they there will be a bipartisan deal reached this time around? immigration has been attempted before and it's failed. >> i think there is a lot of hope. as i said, the stars kind of are aligning on this, not only do you have republicans willing to come to the table and talk seriously about a major reform of immigration law, you've also got traditionally republican-leaning groups like agriculture. i talked to somebody from the western growers association this week who's really pressuring
this. at this moment they're trying to make their own deal with people like john mccain for next to nothing, from our point of view. you wouldn't see any of those four changes that we're pushing for. and i think he is reluctant, unfortunately, to go ahead with the overwhelming majority of democrats that he has. he has 51 democrats that would support senate resolution 4. and we need the american people to call in to senator reid and say, let's take a stand. let's bring democracy to the u.s. senate. >> the polls suggest that the majority of americans really want filibuster reform and want the talking filibuster back. >> right. overwhelming majority. two-thirds, at least. on the other side, 7 or 8 or 9% say, oh, yeah, they should be able to phone in from their fundrai fundraiser, and say, i object, and now you have unanimous consent, and to get out of unanimous consent, you need 60 votes to move forward. very few americans believed that's what they elected a senator to do. >> so a senator could be sitting somewhere off on capitol hill, raising money on the telephone which they all s
is important fought on record all the good things. the new colleague who is coming in, senator john kerry is a person who has been proverbially good as far as pakistan-u.s. relations are concerned. so yes, i think it was barring, because the parliament, and this is interesting because this shows you the new pakistan, as at salada incident happened and we had 24 soldiers who were debt,-- dead, we did not officially through the government pores sgu but the parliament requested for a full apology from the united states so we had kept an apology as the lowest minimum sort of bar which was required for us to be able to pov back into doing business normally. and it took us a few months, unfortunately. but it did come and we did move on. >> rose: you also made a trip to moscow during this period. >> yeah but really i think we see too much of these interconnections all of these relations. >> rose: i notice you smiled before you answered. >> that says something, doesn't it but it not an either/or game, at all. i think none of these relations, our relations with china, our relations with the u.s.,
john boehner delayed action at the time, sparking an outcry from congressmen of both parties. more than 80 people were killed and dozens wounded in syria today. opposition activists said they died when twin explosions ripped through a university in aleppo. the first day of exams turned into a scene of chaos as people ran from the carnage. cars went up in flames, and the school's grounds were littered with debris. it was unclear what caused the explosions, but activists blamed government forces, who in turned pointed at rebels. political turmoil in pakistan deepened today, as the country's highest court called for the prime minister to be jailed. the decision came amid mass protests demanding that the entire government be dissolved. we have a report from jonathan rugman of independent television news. >> reporter: this afternoon thousands in islamabad celebrated their prime minister's downfall. after pakistan's supreme court ordered his arrest on charges of corruption. prime minister roger ashraf, no longer whiter than white and now facing arrest for allegedly taking millions from contra
. and a bunch of scholars got together last monday and tuesday at johns hopkins at a symposium and looked at different issues, they looked at the evidence and they recommended banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines. >> brown: i want to bring in dr. lori gold. from a mental health perspective, what did you hear good and bad that advances this? >> well, i think taking advantage of this opportunity to increase resources for mental health, resources in training for mental health to get regulations on board that create party in mental health insurance, to talk about guns in terms of people who are dangerous as opposed to gun and the mentally ill. i think it's been a big disservice to people who struggle with mental illness that these two subjects have been linked because the majority of gun violence in this country has nothing to do with mental illness and most people who are mentally ill are not violent. so to take it out of that context and put it back into a context of people who might be dangerous, a small section of those people, may have mental illness. but the increased tra
